Your Greatest Impact Yet

You may know Kidney, Transplant and Diabetes Research Australia (KTDRA) is part of The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group.

We’re thrilled to share in 2018, THRF Group was able to invest $24 million into lifesaving medical research and patient care in over 40 different areas of disease and illness!

This is our biggest impact ever!

Your generous support to KTDRA has delivered vital medical research and improved patient care to your loved ones and the community in an area that matters most to you. Thank you!

Thanks to your support, we were able to make the following advances possible;

  • Three successful islet cell isolations and subsequent transplants to improve the lives of patients living with severe Type 1 diabetes
  • Investigated the 3D printing of specialised immune cells to support islet cell transplantation
  • Discovered that patients with closed fistulas (the connection of two blood vessels in the arm) following dialysis showed better cardiac results

For every $1 you donated in 2018, $5 was provided in grants to help eliminate diabetes and kidney disease. – yes it’s true! How? Our administration costs are covered by THRF’s commercial business activities (such as its lottery program) which also boosts our funds to research and patient care each year.

You can feel proud knowing your support is making an even bigger difference to the health and well-being of your loved ones.
